South Sudan Visa Policy

South Sudan has had a new visa policy since the birth of the nation, which is used to regulate the inflow of visitors. This visa categorizes applicants into two groups; those who need visas and those that do not. You need a visa to enter South Sudan unless you are from a visa-exempt country. Some foreign nationals are issued visas once they arrive in Juba. The country has an evolving visa policy, but only citizens of Tanzania, Kenya, Egypt, and Uganda can enter without visas and stay for up to three months. Citizens of Rwanda and Burundi also require visas, but they will get them once they arrive in the country.

South Sudan also issues visas to holders of ID cards issued by the United Nations regardless of their nationality, provided it is cleared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The same privilege is extended to visitors with service, special, official, or diplomatic passports.

South Sudan Electronic Visa

The electronic visa or e-visa is a digital visa obtained online after filling out an application form. 

This visa saves applicants the stress of going to the embassy to apply for it in person. Once you submit your application, you can get it in a few days. E visas grant authorization visitors to travel to the country. The e-visa program was implemented in 2020 and remains highly subscribed.

Key Details About The South Sudan e-Visa You Should Know

Before applying for this e-visa, here is some basic information.

Only For South Sudan Jurisdiction: This e-visa is only for entry into South Sudan and not for Sudan up north. Being a new country and the youngest nation on the African continent, it has its policy and laws. If your wish is to visit Sudan, apply for a Sudanese visa instead.

Use Approved Entry Routes: Only entry routes should be used to access South Sudan. Apart from Juba International Airport, the country's only passenger airport, South Sudan also has five land border crossing routes listed under each visa category. Avoid using an unauthorized route.

Travel With Your Visa: It is advisable to travel with your visa, as the border agents will ask for it. 

You can print the copy from your email address once it is sent to you and keep it safe for your trip. Apart from the entry point, you may be asked to provide it anytime while in the country.

Passport: The passport requirements for the online visa must be met, which is at least 6 months validity. 

Furthermore, the passport used for the application should be the same one used for the trip. Do not travel with a different passport because your e-visa is linked to your passport.

Application Fee: The application fee must be paid before the e-visa application can be submitted. This fee is paid with your credit or debit card, and it is not refundable. When making a payment, make sure the card contains a sufficient amount to cover the fee and transaction cost.

Apply For The Right Visa: Before submitting your application, ensure you know the right visa you are going for. If you are a frequent visitor, make sure you apply for a multiple-entry visa to save you the stress of applying for a new visa each time you wish to travel.
